The camera feature poll

Today, the camera and technology column is a poll, the focus on picking the right tool.First of all the reality for most people is you have one, or possibly two cameras. You have either a cellular phone camera or a point and shoot camera. Some have a cell phone and a DSLR, and based on that today’s focus is on building out the best camera choices for you. We will start with the list that was shared yesterday and will be expanded somewhat.

The intent of this is to build out a framework for people to consider as they evaluate the concepts of and purchase of a camera or a cellular phone. There are no right answers to the questions (this is not a quiz!). But there are refining questions that will help you in your decisions making process. Once you finish the poll, I would then recommend you build out a pros and cons list. Decisions are a process, and the goal of this polls is not to shortcut the process.

The goal is to provide useful information that is actionable. One of the things that drive me crazy is when someone gives you information that is less than useful. For example when people have connection issues with the Virily site and the first thing people say is clear the cache or delete your cookies. There is an impact on that advice, including the fact that you lose everything you’ve saved other than landing pages. Plus, that isn’t troubleshooting, that is punting. So actionable information is the overall goal.
